Iowa State University
University of Missouri-St. Louis – My work explores questions of race, gender, imperialism, modernity, labor, and immigration for how they (re)shape nation-state formation and other political projects. My first book, Braceros: Migrant Citizens and Transnational Subjects in the Postwar United States and Mexico (UNC, 2011) did this by revealing the paradoxes of modernist political project and the predicaments of transnational subjects, whereas my next solo project, “Loyalty and Betrayal,” delves into the intimacies of migratory life and its possibilities for building an autonomous transnational political subjecthood and political constituency. Currently, I am finishing a coauthored manuscript on Zorro films as a window onto historical understandings of political economy and social justice.
